Sencha is the most commonly cultivated and consumed type of Japanese tea. The tea plants are not covered to produce sencha. Exposed to abundant sunlight, the tea takes on a brisk and clear flavor unique to the kind with sufficient sweetness, deliciousness (umami), bitterness and astringency. During recent years, classic “harsh” sencha has become less available because many tea farmers started to cover their fields for several days before tea-picking starts in order to suppress bitterness and astringency and render tea leaves darker green. However, we, at Nakamura Tokichi, select sencha grown without covering as much as possible, although its appearance may not always be as aesthetic.
